Woman Arrested for Throwing Punches At Guest Who Cut In Line and Spilled Drink on Her at Jurassic World VelociCoaster

A New York woman was arrested after she threw punches during a fight outside Universal’s VelociCoaster ride after someone cut in line and spilled a drink on her, police said.

Shaeika Allen, 28, was arrested for battery July 9 — the day before the official grand opening of Universal’s Islands of Adventure’s newest roller coaster, according to an Orlando Police Department arrest report released this month. At the time, the coaster was in soft opening and allowing guests to ride early.

The victim, a 19-year-old Georgia woman, told police her brother tried to cut under the queue line rope to stand in line with her.

As her brother went under the rope, his drink spilled out of his backpack and landed on Allen who was standing behind them. Allen struck the 19-year-old in the face, the arrest report said.

The 19-year-old wasn’t seriously injured but had bruises and a cut that needed stitches or glue to heal, police said.

Orlando Police obtained Univeral’s surveillance video that captured part of the altercation which also involved Allen’s niece.

In the video, the two groups traded words outside VelociCoaster on a busy day just before 5 p.m. as Universal visitors streamed by.

Police said the video showed Allen’s niece was the “primary aggressor” who shoved the 19-year-old first. The 19-year-old’s brother tried to intervene to stop the fight, but Allen escalated the situation, the report said.

“Allen threw multiple closed fist strikes with one of them striking (the victim) on the left side of her face,” the arrest report said.

Shortly afterward, Allen began walking toward the park’s exit where police stopped her. She was arrested and taken to Orange County Jail.

Allen, who could not be reached for comment and does not have a defense attorney listed, is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on a misdemeanor battery charge, according to Orange Circuit Court online records. No charges appeared to be filed against Allen’s niece.

The thing that stuck out most to me here was the phrase “queue line”.Both words have the same meaning. So the line: “The victim, a 19-year-old Georgia woman, told police her brother tried to cut under the queue line rope to stand in line with her.” read to me as: The victim, a 19-year-old Georgia woman, told police her brother tried to cut under the line line rope to stand in line with her…. who is y’all editor?! sheesh.

Okay, then just state “line” for the ignorant Americans. Everyone else can figure that out.

I find it funny that your criticizing an article for its sentence structure when you cant even craft a complete sentence yourself. “Side note, “Y’all” isn’t even a real word, its slang for “you all” which would still make your sentence incorrect, even in its proper form.

Can’t people just be polite and apologize and the other party accept an apology and be done with it. No reason to escalate verbally or physically. Our society is just so sad now days.

I wanted to say ‘free her’, but one person “cutting in line” to stand with a family member who’s already been queuing, is not the same as actually cutting in line imo. Lots of people need bathroom breaks for example, it’s normal to leave the line and come back later to join your family

Who hasn’t wanted to punch a line jumper. I can’t be too mad at this person…Sure, violence isn’t really the best solution, but if the park isn’t going to enforce their own rules (sadly, they often don’t), then people are gonna get frustrated and some might snap. Leaving the line for any reason and rejoining anywhere but the end of the line is standard policy at EVERY amusement and theme park (and most other places too), so the “victim” should have expected consequences. Too bad, so sad those consequences ended up being extreme. Both parties should have been ejected from… Read more »

You make no sense. Nothing excuse physical violence anywhere,
